After having to kiss so many Frogs before I found my Prince, I was greatly relieved to know that I can start building our relationship based on higher standards. It never fails to amazed me though, how much better class and quality the people and situations I now encountered are than before.
As many of you have said before, it's because the older we get, the better at we are at selecting. I also think it is luck and fate, as I would never have selected this New Fling on my own. All the stars were aligned.
I still come across sliminess from people who live in the Kingdom from time to time. My first thought was how could I have been so blind not to see, or so coward not to admit I am in the Kingdom of a Frog? But at the end of the day as I settle down with my glass of wine and my feel good food, I realized it is part of the package. Now, I am pretty low maintenance since my mother's humbleness rubbed off on me. I don't expect ProFlowers.com/birthday-roses-bdr for every Birthday, but I do wish for some kindness and understanding in our everyday dealings. So the kingdom isn't perfect, but at least the Prince hasn't turned into a Frog.
I thought about the Frogs I had to kiss before, and they all had the same problems. Not enough humility. They were Frogs in the inside. Even if this Fling fails to last, it gave me whole new perspective on Kingdoms. I wasn't wrong, the Kingdom and the Frogs were wrong for me. And I learned that not all the Kingdoms operate the same even if that was all we know, what we expected. It is just a matter of luck and fate and if you allow yourself a chance to be led there.
Just an update to the metaphors of my New Fling (if you don't remember who my Fling is, please refer to my first discussion of "My New Fling"). I am thankful everyday that I am no longer Kissing Frogs, and hope I never will have to again. Paradise is Perfect.
